    so i know there are tons of "what's the biggest tire size i can fit with a stock set-up" questions.

    2006 TRD Sport 2 wheel drive

    i have a 3" lift in front (spacers) with AAL in the rear.

    I have stock 17" sport wheels

    What's the biggest i can go WITHOUT wheel spacers?

    Thanks in advance!

    not without aftermarket wheels or spacers. tire diameter is not the isue here, it's tire width. the 285/70/17s will rub on the UCAs, body mounts, probably fenders, and more.

    thanks for the info! nuff said, $200 for spacers vs $600 for UCA's...easy decision.

    I have read alot about alignment issues with lifting the front and not using UCA's but I haven't had any problems and my alignment stays in spec.

    I have just always hated the idea of wheel spacers, doesn't sit well with me.
